Hey guys, I am looking for a pump that would make water changes and mixing water easier. Right now, I use a regular siphon with hose and mix water by hand. I was wondering what the best pump is to pump water out of the tank and back into the tank? Maybe even mix my water for me. If you guys could let me know that would be appreciated.

I use cheap chinese pumps in my mixing station. a cheap $13 SunSun 300gph power head for continuous mixing and another cheap $25 VivoSun 800gph transfer pump for pumping SW from the mixing station into my tanks. I don't worry about them and can replace both pumps if necessary for under $40. Plug them into a smart power strip and I can turn them on/off via voice command via alexa. or just hit the button to turn them on/off.

its cheap and works for me.
